MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS COLLECTION

Standard

Hi girls!

Gonna be doing a long post and it’s the long awaited Mac Archie’s Girls Collection. Here i will not be doing swatches because if I do, it will be a very very verrrryyy long post so I’ll be doing a separate one later on. But for those of you who are interested in what I got from this collection, then keep on reading šŸ™‚

MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS COLLECTION

As you know, the collection itself is huge. They have this collection separated consisting of Betty’s and Veronica’s.

Betty’s collections are more on the neutral “girl next door” colors while Veronica’s are more of the sultry colors. I did not get all, though God knows how much I wanted to but these things are not cheap! Sigh. So I got a few things which I thought I needed and I could not live with. So let’s get started!!

They have two eye shadow palettes, I obviously got my hands on both! They are:

1. Betty’s – Caramel Sundae

2. Veronica’s – Spoiled Rich

Below is what the packaging looks like for both palettes. If you’re familiar with the Wonder Woman or the Hello Kitty eyeshadow palettes that MAC released a while back, this is similar except of the theme but still the same metal compact casings which I adore!

The had so many shades of lipsticks for both Veronica and Betty, but I only got three (2 from Veronica’s and 1 from Betty’s). I got none of the lip glosses cause I rarely use lip glosses nowadays.

Sigma Make Up Palettes – BARE, DARE AND FLARE!

Standard

Heya girlies!

WordPress was being all bitchy with me for the last few hours! I could’ve posted this up 4 hours ago! It took me that long to upload my pictures. Goddd. Anyways, tonight, I want to show you my new Sigma palettes (not THAT new. got them like 3 weeks ago, I think) and I’ve been loving them esp the Bare palette. I’ve been playing around with these palettes and I have to say that they’re not the best BUT they’re still really good.

Some of the colors on each palette are so sheer that they don’t really show up on my NW20 skin but the others are really pigmented. I will show them the swatches for a bit.

And what’s really neat are the dual ended brushes! I love them. They are the same quality as the full sized ones. How AWESOME is that?!

The packaging, hmm. I like them a lot actually! I’ve read a couple of reviews and most people have mixed feelings about the packaging, some say they’re too bulky, they could’ve made them smaller and whatnot but I say so what? Big deal! They’ve pretty packaging and they’re not THAT bulky. I just love everything about these palettes!

DARE, FLARE, BARE PALETTES

DARE, FLARE, BARE PALETTES

DARE PALETTE:


From L to R: SURRENDER, GRASP, CHASE, ESCAPE, REVEAL, CATCH, SHOUT, VANISH

(Yes okay! The pictures of the swatches were taken inside my bathroom, that was the only place that I could get a decent lighting. HAHA!)

And the brushes that came with this palette is..

L: Sigma’s E20 R: Sigma’s E45

Short Shader – E20 – Flat, short, slightly rounded and dense brush. Perfect for precisely applying colors on the lid and smudging along the lash line.

Small Tapered Blending – E45 – Small domed brush with highly tapered tip. Versatile, this brush can be used to precisely apply and blend intense colors to the crease area.

FLARE PALETTE:(Thanks Fids for getting this for me! You’re such a doll!)

From L to R: CRUSH, OVERSEE, DEFINE, PUBLICIZE, RESIST, GOSSIP, ALLURE, BEWARE

And the brushes that came with this palette is..

L: Sigma’s E55 R: Sigma’s E40

Eye Shading – E55 – Soft and dense with a rounded finish. Can be used to apply pressed or loose eye shadows and pigments. Ideal to build intense color on the eyelid. Natural bristles.

Tapered Blending – E40 – Rounded and tapered top. Specially designed to apply and blend color on the crease. Natural bristles.
Last but not least..
BARE PALETTE:
 

From L to R: SHINE, CONTROL, SNOOP, HITCH, ACT, COMMAND, ELOPE, APPROACH 

And the brushes that came with this palette is.. 

L: Sigma’s E30 R: Sigma’s E25 

Pencil – E30– Precise application of color on the crease, outer corner, and upper and lower lash line. Also ideal to smudge out pencil liner. Natural bristles. 

Blending – E25– Oval-shaped brush with gently chiseled sides. Blends and softens the look of powder or cream shadows. Ideal to apply eye shadow primer, base eye shadow colors, and blend harsh lines. 

My thoughts on: 

The Dare Palette:The name explains it all! The colors in this palette is a bit daring for me but still pretty. It has a few dark shades that can smoke any look out making it wearable. This has to be my least fav out of the three which is funny because this was the first one I bought out of all three! 

The Flare Palette: This was a gift from a good friend of mine, Fids, if you’re reading this, I want to say thanks so much for getting me this palette! I really appreciate this.
Now, my thoughts.. If you wanna pick just one of the 3, this is the perfect palette for you! You wanna know why? It’s because these palette has a very good combination of bright and neutral colors. So you’ve got a lil bit of both. 

The Bare Palette:At first, I was skeptical about getting this palette. Some reviewers say that this palette is more or less the same with Urban Decay’s Naked palette, which I have and I didn’t wanna buy this at first. Lord knows how much neutrals I have in my collection, but it just didn’t feel right getting just 2 of the Sigma palettes so I actually got this on a wimp. And I ended up loving this the most. Yes, this looks like your everyday neutral palette, but it’s not just any neutral palette, this has beautiful shades of matte colors. What attracts me was SHINE (a very glittery black) and SNOOP (a matte grey). This palette has good highlight colors as well, ELOPE and APPROACH. Love love LOVE! 

Now girls, this is all. As usual, I hope this was helpful. Comment below if you want me to elaborate more on anything. Until then, will talk to you all soon! ā¤

15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection by Urban Decay

Standard

Hi yall!

Tonight I’ll be presenting Urban Decay’s 15 Anniversary Eyeshadow palette.

Sorry it took me this long to post again. It’s just that this month has been a very hectic month for me. Now enough about that. Honestly, I have not tried using this palette because… I think this palette is precious. It’s too pretty to look at that I don’t even want to use it, but then again I will, very soon I hope. I just loooveeee the colors they have in this palette and I’ve already thought of the different looks I can create using this palette.

Now what I can provide you today are the swatches of this palette. Here is how the colors look like on the palette.

First column on the left:

L to R: MIDNIGHT RODEO, MIDNIGHT 15, VANILLA, FLOW, CHASE

To me, this column has more of the neutral colors.

MIDNIGHT RODEO: This is more of a taupe color that has silver chunky glitters.

MIDNIGHT 15: This is more of a champagne color that has a greyish undertone to it.

VANILLA: This is a yellowish gold color.

FLOW: This is a peach color with a golden sheen to it.

CHASE: This is a soft bronzey color

The middle column:

From L To R: TAINTED, JUNKSHOW OMEN, EVIDENCE, DEEP END

This has to be my favorite column!

TAINTED: This color was a lil disappointing. It looks so nice on the pan but turns out it’s on the sheer side. This is a light lavender color.

JUNKSHOW: Fabulous! A hot pink with a purple sheen to it!

OMEN: This is a purple mixed with a bluish duo chrome.

EVIDENCE: This is a dark navy blue color.

DEEP END: Also a favorite! A pretty green, teal color.

The last column:

From L to R: DEEPER, M.I.A., ACE, BLACKOUT, HALF TRUTH

DEEPER: This is a bronze color with a golden sheen.

M.I.A. : A typical brown color that we all have seen before.

ACE: This is more of a dark gun metal color.

BLACKOUT: A matte black.

HALF TRUTH: This is a dark purple color with a sheen to it.

As you all know, Urban Decay makes quality eye shadows. All of these shadows are soft and mostly, pigmented. I cannot wait to try them out! Oh and the packaging is bomb! The downside is that it easily picks up finger prints. Blergh. Anyways, overall, a good buy. This might be a good addition to you make up collection or if you’re just starting with make up, this palette has good combination of neutrals and bright colors!

Until then, hope this was helpful girls!

Good morning ladies!

I wasn’t supposed to wake up this early in the morning but under a few annoying reasons, I did! Anyways, I decided to do swatches for the NYX’s Haute Jersey Leopard Couture for you girls. I went online the other day and not many did blog swatches for this product, just a few videos from Youtube so I thought I would go ahead and do one for you all.

On the first “page”, you have 24 eye shadows.

L to R: pink blush, coral blush and the highlighter

And last but not least, the swatch for the mini lip glosses..

Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quads, you have failed me! Why oh whyyyy?

Standard

Hello girls!

It’s been a while since Ive posted anything up. The truth is, I’ve been extremely busy with work and with Raya coming up. Cleaning up the house and doing last minute shopping is my number 1 priority right now. Haha

But then again, what I’ll be talking about tonight are two of the things that I purchased for Raya. And before I got them, I was totally going crazy for them. First of all, they have nice packagings and number 2, the colors in the quad looked nice BEFORE you actually try them on, they’re crazily NOT pigmented!! Ahhhh. It was a waste of my money. I got two quads from this line.

L to R: BLUSHING RAISINS & SMOKEY EYES

Not bad eh? Looks lovely in their pans! But don’t be fooled girls!

BLUSHING RAISINS

From top L to bottom R: BRULE, ROSE NUDE, RAISIN, PLUM

Just look at this! Are they not beautiful? I could imagine this being my staple color for work everyday, but Avon, you’ve dissapointed me.

Let’s see the swatches,

From L to R: BRULE, ROSE NUDE, RAISIN, PLUM

This is the result of multiple swatches on the same color. Crazy! They are not pigmented at all. The texture is super chalky and powdery!

SMOKEY EYES QUAD

From top left to bottom right: WHITE PEARL, PRIVATELY PINK, MOONLIGHT, STEEL

Now this I imagined to be my everyday natural smokey look, with the baby pink and grey. It would be wonderful if they were atleast more pigmented than how the are right now.

From L to R: WHITE PEARL, PRIVATELY PINK, MOONLIGHT, STEEL

Tell me that I’m wrong for being very dissapointed with both of these palettes? They look soooooo good in the pans but soooooo bad when worn on or even swatching them is hopeless. So yes. A big F to this!

Not worth your money. DO NOT GET THIS LADIES! You ought to buy Maybelline’s eyeshadows for a cheaper price, better quality.

Until then my lovelies. I hope this was helpful. Will talk to you tomorrow! šŸ™‚

Elianto Pearl Shine Shadows

Standard

Hi my lovelies!

Are you all familiar with Elianto? Honestly, I’ve never heard of Elianto until I saw their colorful booth in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. I saw they had a whole wide range of colors for lipsticks, eye shadows, eyeliners, blushes and what not. Saw their price and I was like, no way these things are good cause they’re TOO cheap! So I swatched a few of their shadows and was amazed with the pigmentation! And I hurried to the counter to get myself one of the shopping basket and picked a whole lot of colors.

Elianto has so many different kinds of eye shadows. I believe that the one I’ll be talking about is from their studio line. I got a few from their “Vibrant Shadow”, “Pearl Shine Shadow” and another kind that was discontinued (and I cant search it off from the internet cause it’s not in the website too!) which I forgot what it was, so sorry about that.

Let’s get on with the post.


This is how the palette looks like. This holds 10 pans of eye shadows. This is sold separately. If I’m not mistaken, it was around RM16 = Ā± BND 8. That’s quite reasonable right?

Now the downside of this palette is that the dividers (is that what you call it?), is not made of plastic. It’s made of a spongy type material unlike the MAC palettes or Coastal Scents palette. But hey, it’s $8 so we really can’t complain that much.

Now these colors I picked out. They’ve got over 20 shades from the Pearl Shine Shadows. They were RM8 (BND 4) each.

Swatches:

PALE YELLOW & LIGHT SALMON

PALE YELLOW & LIGHT SALMON

COPPER BROWN & LAVENDER BLUE

COPPER BROWN & LAVENDER BLUE

SHELL PINK & ROSY PINK

SHELL PINK & ROSY PINK (Nice colors for blush too!)

SPRING TURQUOISE & AQUAMARINE

SPRING TURQUOISE & AQUAMARINE

NILE GREEN & BABY PINK

NILE GREEN & BABY PINK

ELIANTO claims that their Pearl Shine Shadow:

” A pan of silky soft-textured powder that glides easily on eyes. Enriched with vitamin E which is anti-free radicals, this shimmering eye shadow keeps your eyes nourished.”

I totally agree! The shadows are silky and it does glide smoothly on the lids. It stays on better with a base/primer underneath though. And I can say that the shadows blend easily.

Great eye shadows for a great price! You cannot pass this up. So if you do get a chance to go to Elianto, check out their eye shadows!

That is all, as always, hope this was helpful. Now stay tuned for the upcoming post šŸ™‚

My Make Up Collection & Storage! – PART 2

Standard

Hello!

This is the continuation for my make up collection post. I had to split it into two or else it would be a very loooooooong post. Now, let us move on.

Next to my vainity table (as you can see in my first picture in part 1), I have two shelves thats drilled to the wall. The one right next to the vainity is where I put all of my lip products and also my eye shadow palettes.


I store my lipsticks in these acrylic lipstick holders that I got for an affordable price. They had different sizes and different number of lipstick slots. In the pictures below, I will be showing you how they vary from each other.

This holds 24 lipsticks and it comes with a clear container that you can stack on eachother. I put all my lipbalms, lipglosses that are too short to be seen in my lipgloss holder, Anna Sui’s ring rouge in the container.

This is actually a candle holder. So when I was done with the candle, I cleaned the glass and used it to store all of my MAC’s lipglasses and plushglasses. They fit perfectly and it’s really nice that you can see through it to see the colors.

I dont know how to describe this buti it’s sorta like a moon shape. This holds 15 lipsticks.

As you can see, behind there’s a few slots where you can put extra lipsticks or skinny lipsticks that dont fit in the slot. Ive got my Anna Sui’s lip palette, my Holika Holika rose mirror, chapsticks and sample sized lipsticks.

Now this little thing holds 12 lipsticks. Ive got two of these just cause I wasnt sure if i needed anymore at that time, but in the end, i did need another one.

This is where I store my lipglosses. This container is actually a tv remote control holder/pen holder. I also stick the pink w brown polka ribbon around the container just so it does not look dull.

These are the palettes I have. I just place them upright next to the wall and the lipgloss container.

My vainity table has a slide mirror, and behind there are shelves where I can store my body mists, moisturizers and lotions and things like that so I really think thats cool.


In the cabinet, I just put all my make up bags and brush rolls inside. And at the top shelf, I have one of those acrylic containers but in a bigger size so that I can put all my tissue roll, nail polish remover, cuticle removers, extra brush cleanser and everything.

White container has my sample size of everything from different companies. The Coca Cola glass was a freebie from Mcds and I put my hair brushes inside. Now that thing on the right is a brochure holder that I got from a stationery store. It holds my face masks, and hair stuff perfectly.

So, that is it ladies! I hope this was helpful. I’m sorry I cant describe this better just cause, I feel, that most of these things shown are all straight forward. But if you have questions, feel free to comment down below. Thank you for reading! Talk to you all again soon!
